The Slovak President visits the Jessenius faculty of Medicine in Martin

Comenius University’s Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin was visited by the Slovak President Andrej Kiska on Thursday 23 June 2016. Half of the faculty’s student body is made up of international students, which the president sees as proof that there are good schools in Slovakia outside of the capital city. President Kiska visited the laboratories at the Martin Centre for Biomedicine, which is focused on research into neuroscience, oncology, molecular medicine, and respirology.
